ALBANY, NY, January 27, 2013 ( – New York legislators have ruled that NARAL Pro-Choice NY need not disclose its donor lists to the state, as every other lobbying group is required to do by law.

The pro-abortion group received the only exemption to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s prized lobby-disclosure law.


The law mandates lobbying groups make the names of their supporters known to the public.

However, NARAL – the state, and the nation's, leading pro-abortion lobby group – complained that their donors would be put in danger should their contributions be exposed.

In a closed-door meeting of the Joint Commission on Public Ethics on Tuesday, members of the state legislature decided the law would not apply to the group.

Pro-life lobbying groups, however, are still required to hand over their donor lists to the state, threats to safety notwithstanding.

Last year, a pro-abortion activist from New York pled guilty to making death threats against two high-profile pro-life leaders in the New York area. Ted Shulman plead guilty for making the threats to numerous pro-life leaders, including Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, headquartered on Staten Island, and Prof. Robert George of Princeton University.
